VarioFlow plus expands application range

Varioflow plus

Rexroth’s VarioFlow plus enables diverse applications, from general machine interlinking to food and packaging to transportation tasks in difficult environments.

With the VarioFlow plus upgraded modular system, Rexroth now offers users a series of standardized solutions for specific conveyor functions, simplifying fast implementation of customer-specific designs. The application spectrum now includes everything from simple machine interlinking to special ESD solutions in the electronics industry, as well as secure transportation tasks in abrasive environments and stainless steel designs for food and packaging.

In virtually every industry, a competitive advantage depends heavily on short time-to-market. Rexroth’s VarioFlow plus chain conveyor has the ability to achieve fast and easy implementation of diverse, complex transportation tasks, and is ideally suited for faster product introduction.

The system is quiet, enables flexible, customized solutions and saves space. In addition, the MTpro planning software supports fast project planning and has the ability to make short-term adjustments to changing market requirements.

With the latest upgrades to this modular system, users can now benefit from VarioFlow plus in the area of sensitive electronics production. The ESD system ensures the safe avoidance of electrostatic build-up, offers a high chain tensile strength of up to 600 newtons and can also be used in applications requiring workpiece pallet systems.

For use in abrasive environments, the system includes new compact clean-rated conveyor section profiles in stainless steel and stainless steel slide rails. This feature ensures that falling particles capable of causing extreme wear are carried out of the system immediately. Users can effortlessly transport sharp-edged products directly on a steel-plated conveyor chain.

If needed, the new drive concept contains a center drive and a transmission kit, allowing a direct drive to be easily upgraded to a transmission drive. Rexroth offers a low-cost solution especially for accumulating buffer applications: with the 90 degree return unit, users can significantly reduce the need for return chain. New chain types also ensure safe transport of a wide variety of products: the flocked chain protects delicate component surfaces, the gray chain minimizes optical distractions, and roller cleats protect product surfaces in ascending and descending conveyor sections.

Based on comprehensive application know-how, Rexroth has developed drop-in solutions for specific conveyor functions, such as a mechanically controlled traffic barrier for conveyor section junctions. These ready-to-use components simplify the implementation of customer-specific systems, without the need for extensive planning.
